After the year 2000, the western conference has dominated the eastern conference during regular season play, winning more than 60% of their matches against the east. Since the turn of the century, the sole season that the east trumped the west was during the 2009 campaign, squeaking out a 51.3% winning rate. 

For the most part, the eastern conference has been dominated by whatever team LeBron James aligns himself with, making the finals an incredible four straight years with the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Compare this with the west, who have had the Spurs, Warriors, Lakers, Mavericks and the Thunder visit the finals in recent years.

The cyclical nature of which conference dominates the NBA is poised to shift at least slightly towards the east, giving wagering enthusiasts a chance to exploit potential upsets as the odds adjust the match the new reality of the association. As the rest of the league catches up with the legacy of small ball launched by Steve Nash’s Phoenix Suns and perfected by Steph Curry’s Golden State Warriors, it appears that the east is ready to step up. 

For the most part, players tend to bet on single regular season games when wagering on NBA games involving teams from the eastern conference. The moneylines that are listed provide players with the odds of a single game, reflecting all the variables that may affect the outcome of a game, such as injuries, home court advantage, slumps and streaks. Sometimes, certain teams simply have another team’s number, even if there’s a large disparity in the standings. Often, these situations provide the best chance for a big win.

The underdogs in a particular game will be listed with a positive moneyline, such as +275, which represents the fact that you will win $275 for betting $100 on an underdog that wins. For favorites, you’ll see a negative moneyline. In this case, for a moneyline such as -175, you’ll need to bet $175 to win $100 on a wager for the favored team. One great aspect of moneylines is the fact that you know the risk and reward for your bet up front.

Less popular bets include prop wagers that predict a specific aspect of a match. For example, you can bet on how many three pointers will be made by a team or the number of points that a player will score.
